Bills trying to lock up Lee Evans
News got out today that the Bills have given an offer to wide receiver Lee Evans.
Terms of the proposed deal were not available.
Evans didn’t talk about any details of the offer and the Bills didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Evans, who had minor surgery on his shoulder this offseason, will likely command a salary comparable to that of Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald, a two-time Pro Bowler, inked a four-year, $40 million contract — with $30 million guaranteed — in March.
“Lee obviously is a core player in this organization and we want Lee to be here for many years to come,” Bills chief operating officer Russ Brandon said before last month’s draft.
Evans, [emrick]the former Wisconsin Badger[/emrick], is in the last year of a five year deal he signed after he was drafted by the Bills.
